Why are you drawing games you should win, and losing games you should be drawing? Where do all those silly mistakes come from? These are the sort of questions GM John Emms concerns himself with in his new and remarkable book: The Survival Guide to Competitive Chess. Emms deals with purely practical matters: calculation, oversight, bluffing, nerves, grinding out an endgame win, clock control, and facing a surprise in the opening, are just a few topics. No hint of theory here! If you are ambitious, and if you are sometimes asking yourself why you don't always perform to the best of your abilties, then here is a battle-hardening expert guide for you.
